In order to minimise the spread of the coronavirus all museums of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden remain closed until 20 April 2020.

[Translate to English:] Intro

The special exhibitions at Japanisches Palais are dedicated increasingly to the transcultural past of the museum’s own collections, and will tell stories that once appeared to be hidden from us. Crucial is the question how images, forms, ideas and concepts cross perceived boundaries between cultures.
